... at any volume.

Play it soft or play it loud this audience recording truly comes through.

The band performed well, as usual. Even the songs that "you" don't like are competently rendered and you, "too," may come away thereby thinking every song has its own inimitable personality ~~ Redundantly resplendent.

By the third song the sound in the hall is immaculate. The techies squeezing the knobs up at the board quickly dialed the band in.

Perhaps a listener may get a little flustered hearing all the edits in Aiko, for example, and at sundrious places. Nun The Less I encourage you not to merely endure but thereto embrace.

What you can glean from an AUD such as this is that, if you were present, you could clearly discern every voice. On this recording the listener can receive the treatment of each instrument right down to the tiny flicks of Billy's tambourine.

A remarkably comfortable evening of music. The band sounds totally relaxed. There's no pressure. Just another show and they feel like playing.

China Doll starts weird but comes together and features an incredible screeching Garcia hoot owl meltdown leaving one's cerebral cortex thus exposed as a mouse running in the brush. Then repeating thereafter the entire drums and space squarely reek all the way through the most ridiculously bad-ass Jerry-raunched guitar. Eee-yaw!

PITB Reprise, PITB and Day Tripper. Flubs galore but fabulous.

Not a perfect performance and not a perfect recording but very definitely a "keeper" for all times.

I give this show a 32.5 stars out of 5.
